Very well said. I could almost say the same, only I didn't create Valdyan with a linguistic goal, but with a (con)cultural goal: to be the language of my invented world. It's taken on a life of its own, though, and I find that it helps shape the world as much as the world shapes it. Irina -- Varsinen an laynynay, saraz no arlet rastynay. (myself)
